Is it bad?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Is it bad that I don't have any green clothes? I know at school today that everyone will be decked out in green. Green clothes, green headbands, green shoes, and... You get the point. I have one green scarf but it won't match the lavender sweater that I am going to wear today. I don't know why I feel bad about this today. I am not Irish. Although I suppose that "everyone" is Irish on St. Patrick's Day. There will be a line at the Irish pub in town that will extend around the block to get in. It has been at least twenty years since we have tried to brave that crowd. I am not into waiting for a public bathroom!

On a writing note, I did send a friendly inquiry letter to the editor that wanted revisions. The only thing is the person responding was not her. It was the original editor that gave the original feedback but rejected the manuscript. So I am a little worried. I did take most of her feedback to heart but not all. So again, even though it is a much better story with the 1st and 2nd rounds of revisions that I made, I am still worried. There was one piece of feedback that I didn't use. She had commented that "dream sex" was outdated. I really liked that scene, so I didn't change it. The new editor from the same company didn't seem to mind that scene but now that it is in the hands of the other, I'm afraid that it is going to hurt my chances on the story getting published.

Oh well...

  1. I wouldn't get so stressed about the dream scene. If the rest of the story is strong enough the editor will deal with that during edits. And the editor might give it back to the second editor to decide.
